Goldfinches snacking
The local pack of goldfinches chowing away on Nyjer seeds. One time we made the mistake of buying the general “finch mix” seed and the little monsters threw everything that wasn’t Nyjer seed on the ground where the squirrels picked it up. We learned our lesson and now we never buy anything but pure Nyjer.

I’m just a guy with nearly an acre of dirt, a nice little mid-century ranch house and a near-perfect climate. But in my mind I’m a landscaper survivalist craftsman chef naturalist with a barbeque the size of a VW and my own cable TV show. I like to write about the stuff I build, grow and see here at Sage's Acre.
